If you love books like I do then the sites below will be gems for you to return to time after time.
What Should I Read Next – Enter a book you like and the site will analyze a huge database of real readers’ favorite books to provide book recommendations and suggestions for what to read next. You can register for free on the results page and build your own favorites list. Can even enter by ISBN.
Literature Map – This site is really cool. You enter an author you like and you see all these author’s names swirl around, including your author. The author names closest to the author you entered is an author who writes similar material.
Murder By the Book – I love this store. It’s in Houston, TX and I’ve never actually been there, but really want to visit. They seem to have the best book signings and the best customer service. You can order signed books and even have them inscribed personally to you. Almost like you were there. It’s worth signing up for their email newsletter.
Chronicle Books – A great bookstore located in the Bay Area with a magnificent online presence. They have everything cool and interesting. Sign up to follow their blog, like them on Facebook, get on their newsletter list or view their 2012 catalog. Very helpful and have so much to offer.
Allreaders – Thriller/Action precision search. When they say precise, they mean precise, down to plot, subplot, etc. Very cool if you have some time to play around with it.
